Dizzee Rascal Debuts “H-Town” Video

Dizzee Rascal is prepping to release his monstrous new album The Fifth this Summer, but first he gives us a single and music video that you will want to play at full volume.

“H-Town” was shot in Houston, Texas over NBA All Star Weekend with help from Bun B, Trae The Truth, Truck Buck, and The Trill Gladiators. Produced by Oligee and turntable wizard and A-Trak. You can stream the video below.

Speaking on the track, Dizzee said, “The collaboration for this song started with Bun, I came to Houston and had a good time and it stuck with me, I was doing a mixtape at the time and I ended up writing about it and recorded it, I sent it to Bun and he got on it straight away. When I came to Atlanta to record the album I saw Trae in the studio and we decided to do the video.” Continue reading ‘Dizzee Rascal Debuts “H-Town” Video’

Earl Sweatshirt Performs New Song Featuring RZA at MayFest 2013

Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt has been building hype for his forthcoming album since November, and in recent weeks things have been hitting peak levels. Now video has surfaced online showing the young rapper debuting new material featuring a hip-hop legend, and we have the footage to share with you.

While performing at MayFest 2013 over the weekend, Earl Sweatshirt surprised audience members by debuting a new song featuring Wu-Tang member the RZA. The live cut featured RZA on the hook, but it’s hard to believe that he won’t have a full verse on Doris when it arrives in stores later this year. Click here to view the performance.

Unfortunately, Earl Sweatshirt has yet to give any indication of when Doris will arrive in stores. Our hope is before the end of summer, but it could really be anytime between now and whenever the lab monkeys break out and begin taking over the planet. Hopefully it happens before then, of course, and we’ll let you know as soon as a date is set. Continue reading ‘Earl Sweatshirt Performs New Song Featuring RZA at MayFest 2013′

Felony Fame: Artist Of The Week

Felony Fame

It is once again Search For The Coldest time, when our friends at Coors Light® invite MCs from across the country to show what they’ve got for the chance to be crowned COLDEST MC. Naturally, our thoughts turn to last year’s winner, Felony Fame (aka Propane Fame), who made it to the top spot on the strength of his track “Beastie Boy” and, of course, his formidable lyrical skills and ability to deliver in a live performance. Since his win in 2012, Felony Fame has been on the rise and so we’re happy to name him this week’s OurStage Artist of the Week. Coming to us from North Carolina, by way of New Jersey, Fame has a distinct sound, with a gift for rhymes and compelling imagery backed by rich sonic textures and off-kilter beats that keep listeners hooked.

I’ll Tell Ya What: New Music From Ex-Pats Linebacker Tully Banta Cain is “Out of Control”

Here at OurStage, we make it a goal to fill each and every day with the best music news we possibly can. Somedays that means writing half a dozen pieces on Rick Ross and others that means we’re going to be listening to a lot of dubstep, but today it’s a middle ground that we think everyone can enjoy.

While searching the morning’s headlines and editorials, a blog from popular urban music site HitEmWhereTheyAint caught our eye. In it, a blogger from the site goes in depth on the new single from Ex-Patriots Linebacker Tully Banta Cain, who recently launched a hip hop career. You can read the entire post below or, if you feel like giving HitEmWhereTheyAint a visit, click here to see the original post.

Stream Juicy J’s New Collaborative Single With The Weeknd, “One Of Those Nights”

Juicy J has been part of the music scene since the early 90s, but it wasn’t until the release of “Bandz A Make Her Dance” last Summer that his solo career garnered much attention from the press. Now that he’s reached the peak of pretty much every chart that follows urban music, people want more new material than ever, and last night Juicy released a single that is sure to leave you with a smile on your face.

Joining forces with Canadian sensation The Weeknd, “One Of Those Nights” finds Juicy J leaning heavy on a simple drum and bass beat with light synth accompaniment for a track meant for late nights that seem to never end. This may seem like nothing new from a lyrical perspective, but it goes down smooth nonetheless. You can discover “One Of Those Nights” below: Continue reading ‘Stream Juicy J’s New Collaborative Single With The Weeknd, “One Of Those Nights”’

Tyler, The Creator’s “Domo 23″ Video

Odd Future‘s Tyler, the Creator has a future in character-based comedy, when this rap fad finally ends. He was pretty hilarious as 53-year-old golf fanatic Thurnis Haley in promos for his album Goblin. And now you can see him as a semi-pro wrestler in his new video for “Domo 23,” the first single from his upcoming album Wolf (April 23). Look for Earl Sweatshirt and Domo Genesis amidst the chaos. And don’t worry, Tyler hasn’t forgotten about golf. You have to admit the dude is pretty brilliant, even if you think is genius is a bit evil. It might surprise you to learn that this clip is NSFW.
